IBM Netvista A30P

 

This NetVista is a well-built, compact starter system. However, those willing to forego the name-brand cachet of IBM will find similar, less-expensive offerings elsewhere.

Product Specifications

Powerful, affordable IBM NetVista A Series desktops are built with Intel Pentium 4 or Celeron processors and fast DDR memory to meet your current needs and support you for the future. They even incorporate six USB 2.0 ports for easy, plug-and-play expansion. Need the latest graphics and applications? NetVista A30p models are right for you. They feature integrated Intel Extreme Graphics or exciting video card choices from ATI or NVIDIA, including the NVIDIA GeForce4Ti4200 with 128MB of DDR memory on select models. Stay more productive using IBM Rapid Restore PC (available by download) to quickly restore previously-saved versions of software and data in case of software error or accidental deletion. Connecting to the network or high-speed broadband services is as easy as plugging in a cable, thanks to integrated Ethernet. Select models also feature a dial-up modem.
